Welcome to the Wild Rossendale website. The site is a place where Mandy and I record things we encounter in the natural world. There is a heavy slant toward bird watching but as most birders know you just can't ignore other interesting life cycles in the natural world. The website (no not a blog) is split into two main parts with a supporting cast around it.
The first main section is all about the wildlife that visits our suburban garden that nestles in the Rossendale Valley.
The other main part of the website is dedicated to our trips outside of the Rossendale Valley including trips in Europe and beyond. Our love to travel is documented in the world trip reports section where detailed trip reports are given for that particular place or country. These are written as though it was a virgin trip there so they are full of information that I found of use on our first visit to that particular place.
Mandy is more Butterflies, Flowers, Dragonflies and fast walking....The choice of weapon to capture moments is DSLR and various lenses including macro.
I am more sedate birding..with digiscoping my main choice in photography.
The most asked question...."Are they any good?"...I will let the photos answer as photography is always subjective, although digiscoping invariably requires a certain OCD element to it!
